Jayanth Dev was born in April 1989 in Bangalore, India. While he makes his living as an award-winning Author and a Digital Marketer, his interests also include script-writing and blogging. From an early age, Jayanth’s vivid imagination was sparked by the stories that would come to him in his dreams. Many people label him a “dream-writer” since his works are so often adaptations of his dreams.
“Dhantasura: War of Justice against the Gods” is the third book of Dev which laces around the magic and mystics of Indian Mythology. The book begins with the killing of Mahishasura. The book then progresses with Gajasura escaping into jungles with his family to peacefully raise his twins. One fine day God did something evil, and Gajasura took a vow from his son Dhanta to avenge God for their selfishness and the irreparable loss which their act had caused to their family.
The story revolves around Dhanta and how he transformed into Dhantasura. The book is written in great detail and I personally enjoyed the description of battles and the way Dev depicted Indian culture is also phenomenal. It is a fast-paced book with amazing and vivid world-building which overall makes the book an engaging read.
It is a book power-packed with actions and at the same time has an equal dose of emotions in it. The author has successfully managed to raise several questions without hurting anyone’s religious beliefs and left excitement in readers to seek the next book in this trilogy.
I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to those who are inclined toward Indian Mythological fiction. Eagerly waiting for the next part!
